  1. How do chaps, Well it was bound to happen... Patch fully made his way into the house today. He made himself at home and lasted about an hour before he shot his bolt by deciding to try and scrag the sofa! Suffice to say he was banished back to the conservatory until he learns the sofa is not a scratching post! Regards, Steve
  2. I've been having a go with the GW Contrasts. Took a bit of getting used to but i quite like them. I did find some covered better than others though. This was done with Contrasts other than the metallics and some of the small details etc. Used Wrathbone as the base coat which is a nice warm creamy colour. Loads of vids and tutorials on the tube and i like the ones by a chap called Warhipster Regards, Steve
  3. Just pre-ordered the Cadia Stands army box set for 30 quid less than GW RRP! 25 figures, 2 artillery pieces and a new design Sentinel plus the Codex and data cards. The Codex and cards will probably be sold on as i don't play the games. DAMN YOU GAMES WORKSHOP! Regards, Steve
  4. Watched the dubbed version last night and was mightly impressed with it. Noticed quit a few wobbly rubber bayonets though! Thought Saint Chamond mock ups were very good too. Regards, Steve
  5. What a charming little diorama Regards, Stece
  6. Another years worth of car and home insurance... the rob dogs! Regards, Steve
  7. Must be all that Israeli armour you keep building! Regards, Steve
  8. A fixed penalty parking fine of 35 quid. Had to take mrs fatfingers to a walk in centre yesterday as her GP had no appointments and she needed to be seen. Parked up on street next to centre and went in to get her booked in. Came out after a couple of minutes to move car and bang... had a ticket! He must have been hiding in the bushes and i'm sure they attend the Army Commando School to learn camo techniques! Can't really complain though as it's my own fault and was worth it as mrs fatfingers got seen and well cared for Regards, Steve
  9. Thats a beauty.. Never realised Hino made cars as I always thought they only made trucks! Regards, Steve
  10. A trip to Mighty Lancer Games in Bridlington today yielded this... The Minister of War & Finance said it has to go to some bloke called Santa! Regards, Steve
  11. Via ebay... 2 more Sherman kits to add to the 'collection' Sherman III Mid Production Sicily Sherman Ic Firefly (Welded Hull) Think the Ic will be done as a standard 75mm gun tank as i've got a few spare turrets in the spares box. Only one i need to complete the 'British' Sherman collection is the Ic Compsite which seems to always go for silly money! Regards, Steve
  12. A selection of Citadel Contrast paints to have a go with. Been watching quite a few painting vids on the tube and finally decided to give them a go. Not cheap, but then a again not much is these days! Regards, Steve
  13. In my case it's the cat! Oh, and sausages, sausages make me happy! Regards, Steve
  14. He certainly bosses me about like an RSM! Regards, Steve
  15. Patch mid yawn but he looks like he's shouting at me to let him in! He was a poorly puss the other week as he was off his food and was listless and very sleepy. He even let me bathe his eyes without protest so he was deffo unwell ☹ Was planning the logistics of getting him to the vet but we managed to bring him round with a worming tablet, Felix Cat Soup and cat nip spray! He slept a lot for 2 days and he's now back to his normal self with a lovely coat and bright eyes. Since he get better he's also much more affectionate and is now happy for me to pick him up to put him out! Have to say though he could now clear a room when he farts! Regards, Steve
  16. @Vince1159 You could always try and nick the original from Leeds Art Gallery! Might be a bit big to get on the plane back home though Regards, Steve
  17. I once had a very enjoyable drinking session with Tom Baker of Dr Who fame. Was in a pub close to the Leeds Grand Theatre where is was in a play. A very entertaining and funny man. He asked what the time was and when told his eyes went wide and he said 'flip im on stage in 20 mins' and shot out the door... suffice to say he didn't use the word 'flip' Also had a beer with Freddie Jones, who was also a very charming man. He was rather surprised that i knew about his films prior to him being in Emmerdale! We talked about The Elephant Man, Juggernaut and various other horror films he'd been. Most awsome? Well, that has to be Ben Parkinson who i met at the Yorkshire Wartime Event a couple of years ago. He's got a wicked sense of humour even after everything he's been through since he was injured in Afghanistan. Regards, Steve
  18. Great job on a nice kit. Especially like the stowage Regards Steve
  19. Marvelous news and high time Leeds had a model show of its own. I'll be there! Regards, Steve
  20. Had the original version when i was a nipper and loved it. Sold that and the rest of my Lego Space sets a good few years back on ebay for a decent price. Really wish i had kept it all now though ☹ Regards, Steve
  21. Thats just brilliant and all your hard work has really paid off! Can we expect an Imperial Guardsman to keep him company at any point?? Regards, Steve
  22. Been in Whitby today and spied one of these (internet pic) Then managed to follow it over the moors and down part of York Road before it turned off. Seemed to be in good nick, except it looked like it had a bit of a lean on the suspension to the drivers side Regards, Steve
